It is our great pleasure to welcome delegates, exhibitors and sponsors to the eleventh edition of the WCRR 2016.
The World Congress on railway research is the world’s foremost international forum for promoting, developing and exchanging the latest innovations from the global rail industry.
The international community of railway companies, researchers and other stakeholders will meet to share their experience. railway research and innovation involving operators, infrastructure managers and industry planners not only relate to technical matters, but also affect all the industrial and financial processes required to build and offer customers services through higher-capacity, better-performing and more cost-effective rail systems.
This is the aim of the WCRR 2016 with its theme research and Innovation from Today Towards 2050.
encouraging all railway stakeholders to show and share what they do and thereby innovate their activities, aiming to deliver a better-performing, and more sustainable railway system that appeals more to new and existing customers, looking towards two horizons: long term vision and the near future.
Sponsors and exhibitors as well will have the chance to benefit from this opportunity to show cutting edge activities, products and research to the international stage and Congress participants.
The WCRR 2016, hosted by Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane group and Trenitalia, will take place at the Stella Polare Convention Centre in Milan, Italy – in the heart of Europe and a destination for tourists and business from all over the world – from 29 May to 2 June 2016, thereby becoming the biggest ever rail conference/exhibition hosted in that region, with 800+ participants from 30+ nations around the world, 300+ speakers, papers and proofs of concept.
